    Hey fellow Bunnies I hope some of you love the Aussie Tennis Open like I do.....

    The draw is on right now:

    Can Kyrgios behave and knuckle down???

    How will Barty go??


    Young Alex De Minaur has drawn Tomas Berdych in what'll be a great learning curve....


    I'm going for Roger......

    I'm a huge fan of Federer & I really love Serena Williams who I believe is one of the best athletes ever!
    Is Serena playing??

    I used to watch Tennis a fair bit, as my girlfriend really liked it but we haven't watched it for a few years now.

    She'd be playing if her husband pulled out...

    I've never really watched too much tennis apart from the odd match that was on tv. Pretty sure the misso's family are right into it though so i may have to watch a bit this time around.

    @doyen well Venus was knocked out the other day by the talented young Swiss lady....

    Raonic also being eliminated was a surprise....

    Good win tonight by Barty against a very talented young shrieking opponent...

    Good to have 5 Aussies in action tomorrow in their second round matches....

    De Minaur can be proud of his effort and winning a set.....

    Massive future ahead...

    40C in Melbourne today......

    The court on Rod Laver Arena was apparently 69C......

    Just so hot for the player and Monfils really struggled......

    Meant to be 42-43C tomorrow in Melbourne.....


    Currently watching our Aussie Ash Barty in action...

    Brilliant effort last night from Kyrgios overcoming Tsonga.....

    He's the only Aussie left and in 4th round action tomorrow night against Dimitrov which shall be epic.....

    Big shock with Berdych knocking out Del Petro...



    Great watching Hewitt and Groth in doubles too and into the third round.....

    It was so so so so so loud on court...... the atmosphere looked magnificent and I'd love to have been there.....

    Great effort by Kyrgios but not quite at that next level....

    Dimitrov too good on the big points...

    There goes my interest in tennis for 12 months then.
    I've watched a few games here and there in this tournament, it's not for me.

    What a great women's tennis semi between Kerber and Halep....

    Sheer exhaustion and both players having fallen on their knees and fallen over during points and still won the point....

    Brilliant tennis...

    Unfortunately I missed that one but the final between Wozniacki and Halep was an excellent match.

    @southsport you watching mate???

    Fed had it early on but Cilic really settled and in that second set tie break Federer was waiting for a couple of errors from Cilic but Cilic took it on his terms and just threw caution to the wind......
